Steer clear
Operator (Former Employee) –  Carrickmacross17 September 2019
Keep well away from this place. There is a stark difference from what actually happens on a daily basis from the the picture that was painted at the interview. Steer clear

Terrible place to work
Operator (Current Employee) –  Charleville, County Cork11 September 2019
Kerry is a terrible place to work. It's run by kids straight out of college who never worked a day in their lives. They keep check on every minute at the clock. The shift work requires you to work 7 days, evenings or nights a week.

They don't listen to employees wishes
General Operative (Former Employee) –  Carrickmacross, County Monaghan14 August 2019
I worked there for a number of months, on night shift, despite asking to be moved onto the day shift as didn't suit, they didn't take into consideration, despite newcomers getting in on days, I was left on nights. Also, little or no Irish working there so tend to be in the minority.

Management style is from the 1950's
Operator (Current Employee) –  Charleville, County Cork5 November 2018
Expectation for General Operators is to work 7 days per week Kerry expects to be entitled to change your shift pattern at a days notice no matter what plans you may have made. No respect for peoples personal lives.
Pros
Money reasonable for operator work
Cons
Shift patterns ridiculous

Bullying will never stop unless someone records it
Plant Operator (Former Employee) –  Listowel, County Kerry3 August 2018
i always heard it was a great place to work but there was bullying when i was there. The supervisor did nothing about it and he saw it going on. There seems to be a culture of silence in Kerry Group. When i attended a staff meeting people were afraid to speak up in case they would be punished, it was the bullies who spoke up instead. When i look back on my time in Kerry Group it just makes my blood boil.
Pros
a chance to work
Cons
Bullying
